Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
This is a great park with trails, ponds, birds and the river. Would be nice to go back for a concert at the amphitheater. Ran the trails everyday and across the river. Lots of opportunities to learn to sail, kayak or paddleboard.
Newbury street is definitely the place to go in boston. The cafes and restaurants here are amazing and all the shops you need are here too! Very quaint street with beautiful trees, enjoyable even just to walk.
"A beautiful example of Richardsonian Romanesque Architecture"
reviewed 3 days ago by Isabella3890
For anyone interest in architecture Trinity Church is one of the finest examples of Richardsonian Romanesque in the US today. The interior was designed by John LaFarge and many of the stained glass windows were designed by Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris all of which are beautiful executed.

I'd heard about this from a friend and it was really cool. Also liked the video about Mary Baker Eddy that you can watch before or after. Very informative. Will be great to see the whole area and the church when renovation is complete.
Delicious and great service! These days it is hard to find great service. SRV is the whole package, service with no attitude, attention to little extras like more bread, and prompt attention to everything!
Had a very nice dinner there - nice settings, decor, and food. Of course, lobster gnocchi is a must to have dish, along with any others. Chefs are certainly putting their heart in cooking and presenting the dishes; wine paring is also great. Overall very good experience.
We went at Davio's for my wife's birthday. We had a reservation for 5pm but got there a bit sooner.
The guy at front desk could be very nice if he was less judgemental. Judging my wife as he saw her and he was all nice after we said we had a reservation.
We were invited to sit at the...
I rarely write reviews before I leave a hotel but I felt that The Lenox deserved a review beforehand. What makes great hotels, no matter what the price point is the service they give. The Lenox has been truly extraordinary in the short time I’ve been here. Having been hit by some bad news on the family front, I arrived...
Sometimes you pay a lot for a tiny cookie cutter room in a ginormous hotel in a big city. Not this time! This property enjoys the history of having been a proper men’s residence 140 years ago, and even though the rooms are furnished in the typical modern Courtyard style, the building is historic and unique. Our room was sparkling...
The experience begins the moment I walk through the doors of the Mandarin Oriental-Boston. The feel of the lobby and the welcoming engagement of the front desk staff are comforting and calming. It's my number 1 option in Boston.
Loews Boston Hotel is a relaxed, elegant and generally lovely place to stay. The staff are polite and friendly. The room-service is well plated and quite delicious. The beds are comfortable and the linens are nice. Overall, it wasn’t a totally spotless hotel but it was extremely close. And I’m very picky when it comes to hotel cleanliness but I...
We had a wonderful stay in Boston. The hotel was beautiful and the restaurant was delicious. The staff was friendly. Slight detractors were that we asked for some housekeeping supplies that never made it to the room. Unclear why with little follow up. We also noticed a lot of dust on a few of the lamps.
